- 6WiFi sense is a really great addition to this phone because it does two key functions. It allows you to connect automatically with open WiFi networks or hotspots, and it also exchanges information with your Facebook friends or with your credentials. It exchanges credentials with Outlook and other forms of communication. It saves those credentials for you, allowing them access to you.Press WiFi Sense and this brings up some more options.

These will give some information to the network, but we don't actually have to reveal our identity. To change any of these, tap the box and type it in using the keyboard that pops up.On this screen you can put in a name and email address.

We can turn this On or Off, depending on what we desire, by sliding across the switch as before. This will allow easy access between your Outlook friends, and if they want to contact you by email, or by Facebook or Skype.

I can connect Lumia 535 but no internet access?
Hello, I can connect Lumia 535 but no internet access .
How many devices do you have connected to the WiFi router. With Windows 8.1 and higher, you will get knocked off a router if there are too many connections. Delete the saved WiFi password and try it again. Then do a soft reset by pulling the battery. Finally, toggle the WiFi off and on. If none of these solutions help then it is your APN Settings on the Nokia Lumia 535.
What is the static IP address and how can I connect to WiFi manually?
I can not download big application without connecting to WiFi.. I have tried: I try downloading but the response it gives is file too big to use data. Connect to WiFi. I think it was caused by: I don't know about it
Static IP allows you to connect to a certain internet gateway. You do not need it unless you are connecting several networks. You connect to WiFi manually by turning it on in the phone settings or the drop down notifications screen. Then you would search for available networks, choose your router, and put in your password.
I am a user with Windows 10 on a Nokia Lumia 535. For WiFi connection, I am getting frequent error messages of "No internet access" please help?
Frequent "No internet access" in Windows 10 Lumia 535 while trying to connect to WiFi network.
Delete all Hotspots in the list. Then reboot your router while also turning off the data on your device. Turn off the phone and remove the battery. Once you have re-inserted the battery, turn on the data and try to reconfigure your hotspot settings. Your router will also need to have a WPA2 connection. If all else fails, call your Internet Service Provider and request they reset your MAC address.
